Poisoners throughout History

ID : 86388   
« back to classes page

Think the art of poisoning began and ended with the Borgias? What about Arsenic Annie, a German immigrant who was the first woman executed by electrocution in the United States? And Dr. Edward Pritchard? His hanging was the last public execution in Scotland and attendance was said to reach 100,000. The history of poison stretches from 4500 BCE and poisons have been used for many purposes across the span of human existence, most commonly as weapons, anti-venoms and medicines. Engage in an educational and fascinating discussion of homicidal poisoning from the days of early humankind, down through the “Italian and French Schools of Poisoners” and into the present, with case discussions of real poisoners drawn from criminal history.
